Let’s go car shopping! That car is not very clean! Too bad you gotta go back to college today…. It smelled like dog and weed inside!! Bye everyone! see you again soon! You can buy a car and return it within 3 days if you don’t like it!! LOL I gotta find a good car for my wife soon!!! What time is it? 4 4AM!! We are at LAX… Unfortunately summer is over and you gotta head back to college now. But we had a really fun summer together!! We did a lot of fun father-son stuff together!! Did you have fun this summer? Yeah! I had a lot of fun! I hope you have a safe flight back to Atlanta… I’m gonna make more car friends in the Atlanta area so when I come to town we can have some fun! Maybe some fan will have a Ferrari he will let us use… or better yet a Lambo!! Too much Ferrari lately!! Lambo is good! Unfortunately you wont see the Kid on many upcoming videos for a while… but if any of you would like, send the Kid a word of encouragement in the comments below!! I think that is a good lesson to take from this summer… and by the way, check out the Kid’s shirt!! This is a newer version Steve’s POV shirt… it’s available on StevesPOV.com and Amazon Japan as well. see you all again soon!! It’s kind of lonely without the Kid around… We had such a fun summer together! But now I am on my own again… at least until Thanksgiving… In the meantime the Kid needs to be positive and focus on doing well in school!!! and I have to stay positive and do what I do… Real Estate, Youtube and Steve’s POV merchandise sales as well!! lol While the Kid was still in town, we started a new car search for my wife’s next car that will replace the Mazda CX5… Mazda has been following up with me asking me if I wanted another Mazda… but I am thinking something different this time! Nothing at all against Mazda!! I love Mazda! even as I wear a Datsun hat, I love Mazda!! I like Datsuns, I like Nissans, I like Fords too!! and I like Ferraris too!! I like all kinds of cars… but Ive had a lot of Mazdas for my wife now for many years… Thats exactly why I want to change this time…. and lately Ive been into used cars too! I find used cars lately to be a better value for me…. With good used car shopping you can save a lot of money from what the original price of the car was!! My Raptor is a good example of that! and so is the car I am going to see right now… (I think) Let’s go do some car shopping! The Kid isn’t with me today to car shop… I’m shopping alone today but plan to have a good time doing so!! I am headed to a large used car dealer called Carmax. I would equate Carmax in America to possibly Gulliver in Japan…. I am pretty sure Carmax is the biggest used car dealer in America.. and they buy a lot of cars too… I’ve always had a good image of Carmax as a company. I’ve never bought a car from them before but I have sold them several cars in the past. You don’t need to buy a car from them in order to have them buy your car. and I must say, they usually offered some pretty good buy prices. A lot of people always ask me what they should do to sell their cars…. It depends on the car but many times I tell people to take it to Carmax and let Carmax give you a price for the car. In most cases they offered the best price and the easiest transaction and payment. I have given that same advice to many people and they have always been happy with the result. But today I am going to Carmax as a buyer.. not a seller… I haven’t told you what I am planning on buying yet… but you will see soon! Carmax has the car I am planning on buying for my wife. I’m headed to Carmax in Burbank California. Its about a 20-30 minute drive from where I live…. This Carmax location is really big!! and I hope the car they have will work for me (my wife)! This car is not very clean at all!!! There are scratches and chips all around the car… and inside smells like dog and a lot of dog hair too…. and also a pretty strong smell of weed in there!!! LOL I left Carmax…. The salesman Ernie was a really nice guy! Unfortunately the car wasn’t very nice… It was scratched up… and it really smelled like a dog inside!! I must have some connection to dogs or someone is telling me to get a dog soon!! lol but there was a lot of hair and strong smells inside that car! I don’t think that Audi Allroad will work for my wife…. But I like Carmax’s approach… no negotiation required.. the price is the price on the car…. Their pricing isn’t ridiculously cheap… but they isn’t really very expensive either…. I think they price their vehicles pretty fairly for retail… for the average car buyer you can come here and buy with confidence… you can get an extended warranty for the car… and you can even buy the car, drive it for 3 days and return it if you don’t like it!!!! That is very American indeed!! lol Glendale is a city next door to Burbank. and there is a terrific Chinese dumpling restaurant in Glendale…. I’m pretty hungry right now… the Kid and I go to eat dumplings together sometimes…. The Kid’s not here so I guess I’ll have to eat some extra dumplings on his behalf!! The last time the Kid and I went to eat there they were out of dumplings!!! I hope that isn’t the case today!! No matter what, they have great Chinese food so I’m heading to Glendale!! and while I am eating maybe I’ll do some more car searching for another Audi Allroad. Oh no… this parking garage feels really small for my Raptor!! Look up! I didn’t realize how big this truck feels inside this garage!! Looks t how close it is up top!! I ate like a pig!!! and I still got a lot to take home with me! This place is soooo good! I love these Chinese vegetables too!! I think this is garlic kale… it is so tasty! This restaurant (Din Tai Fung) is best known for its dumplings (ShoRonPo japanese pronunciation) and Chinese Manju (sweet buns) are delicious!! I’m taking some home with me too! what a great lunch that was! I really love Din Tai Fung. I am so stuffed! and I am now ready for a nap too!! lol I will come here again soon… but next time with more people…. the more people the better for food like this so you can try lots of different things!!! it really is delicious stuff! But I need to find a car for my wife fast! The Mazda lease is up and she wont have a car soon!!! I hope I find something good soon!!
